4-Star Enzo Jennings lists Kentucky in Top-11

Enzo Jennings has made his first round of cuts – and Kentucky made the list. Of course, the 2020 4-star prospect left 11 schools on his radar, but it’s still positive news for the Cats.

The Michigan native is listed as a 6-foot-2, 178-pound cornerback. He comes in just inside the top-100 players in the class nationally (No. 93) and ranks as the No. 11 “athlete” in the class. According to Jennings’ 247Sports profile, the top-four contenders for his commitment are Auburn, Georgia, Tennessee and Notre Dame, and he is being recruited by Steve Clinkscale, the Cats’ defensive backs coach.

To make it even more interesting, Jennings is also teammates with 5-star offensive guard Justin Rogers. His commitment, as of now, seems to be between Georgia and Ohio State, but Kentucky is still listed as a ‘warm” school on 247Sports (along with LSU, Michigan and Tennessee). And it looks like he still needs some help deciding:

Kentucky has several young guys coming through the pipelines for both of these positions, but they are losing key seniors, so it never hurts to pick up a few more highly-touted recruits. At the cornerback position, UK will lose Derrick Baity and Lonnie Johnson; at offensive guard, they’ll lose an All-American in Bunchy Stallings.

We’re still a long way away from getting ink-to-paper for these guys, and I know there are people out there who get worn out with football commits, especially in the age of the dreaded de-commitment. But these are two talented, out-of-state ball players from up north, and it means something they’re both still interested in Kentucky. A few seasons ago, we wouldn’t have been able to say that.

    Top 11? I can’t quit laughing. What a waste of time to write about.

      Yet you somehow managed to not only read the article, but also comment.

    Sounds like he must have had the same high school English teacher as Jameis Winston

      In today’s school system he must be in the Advanced classes!! How can you possibly graduate high school and not be able to write a simple complete sentence? Sad, just sad.

    Really this kid has a top 11? He just wants attention. Tell him to let us know when he has a top 3…

    Jennings is from Michigan but it’s “cool” interest with the Wolverines and State didn’t even offer him. Also the crystal ball has him 100% to ND… why are we talking about him? I guess you had to meet a quota for posts?

    At least we’ve got “warm” interest with Rogers. Though he does refer to himself in the third person. He tweets like he’s a stock protagonist from every sports movie.

    Go ahead and laugh. Evidently some of you know very little about recruiting. This player talking or every mentioning UK while talking with other recruits might pique another players interest in the Wildcats. Some are so out of touch with things they know nothing about.

      And they insist on staying that way. Ignorance must be bliss

    Go get em, Big Dog!

    Top 11 is not news worthy. Even if both commit today, 30% chance we would keep em. Even if we were UGA, I’d put that at 50%.

    Top 11 is not worth anything.

    Get this kid Coach Clink plus I’ve seen 100% committed to one school and I be dam he’s at UK. Lol some of these guys post on here just to read what they wrote. We need you Justin we really do and you would look real nice doing work on our line. Help this program to keep growing.
